NBC News Uncritically Swallows HHS Obamacare 'Surge' Number

Ooooh! Let's throw a Brosurance keg party!!!

The March Obamacare numbers are surging! Yes, in just the first two weeks of March, the number of "enrollees" has surged 800,000 from 4.2 million to 5 million. How do I know this? Because the Department of Health and Human Services told me so and the most "transparent" administration in history would never fib, would they? If you think that your humble correspondent is incredibly naive for blindly swallowing the HHS Obamacare numbers, I am just reflecting the attitude of a report at NBC News written by senior health writer Maggie Fox acting as if she were a stenographer for the HHS PR department:

If the numbers were in reality anywhere near what the HHS is claiming, they would have already provided us with the raw data. Meanwhile, they depend on their useful fools in the media to uncritically report their highly inflated figures.

The local NBC affiliate partnered yesterday with “Get Covered America” (”Enroll America”) and streamed the phone number for Enroll America at the bottom of the screen during the evening news broadcast. They offered stand-by health insurance “counselors”.

The progressives are working feverishly to get people enrolled.

*********************************

Speaking of numbers, per some sources, they DO have payment stats .... just choose not to look at them because they aren’t good news for perpetuating the Obamacare scam.

I’m not a member of obamacare and never will be. Have heard this is how the system works. Those who sign up are obtaining tax credits (non-payable to purchaser) but are instead given to the insurance company the purchaser buys insurance from. The net is a large loss for the purchaser of obamacare but is not told to the purchaser of obamacare or those ignorant enough to sign up. Is short and sweet but from those have talked with, in the know, this is the in-place system.

It's funny how the Democrats always get a "surge" when they need it.

Obama surged past Romney in the last days of the election, sweeping all of the swing states, and now Obamacare signups are surging just as the news cycle needed it to.

Amazing.

Remember when the RATS faked unemployment and other economic data before the election?

NBC probably made up the numbers themselves.

You know, I was going to say something snarky like, the pooch is showing the same bit of concern and alarm ala Lois Lerner. But Dude!!! That pooch is too cute to be linked in any way to ol’ LeatherFace Lerner.
